2.3 pound Tri-Tip tonight...it was "firm chilled" (almost frozen)...10 minute preheat on the grill while I seasoned the meat...cooked 1.5 hours until 150*...multitasked doing other thing while I let it cook...let rest for 10 minutes...yum...
 
I took a picture, but it's too late tonight to post a photo...maybe next time I'm online...

    Last night we had pan seared sea scallops with a white wine, butter and lemon sauce, along with rice pilaf and spinach sauted in olive oil. Needless to say, lleechef prepared dinner.
     
    We bought the scallops at Wholey's in Pittsburgh on Thursday, along with a pint of freshly-chopped clams. Tonight it'll be lleechef's clam chowder after the Ohio State-Penn State game and just before the (New York-- I don't care what they say) Giants play at Detroit for game three of the World Series.
     
    This post has been edited to fix my error. I originally said the scallops were sauteed. They were not.

      Never got around to making the casserole until this afternoon. Whatever.

          We went last night to our favorite Chinese place for dinner and I ordered the "Spicy" Ma-li chicken.
          When it arrived I found it not to be nearly as spicy as I wanted so I ordered a seperate container of the "Spicier" sauce to dip my chicken into.........BAD mistake! The first bite took my breath away, brought tears to my eyes and made my nose run! 
          I somehow managed to survive and scarfed almost all of the sauce.
           

           
          The sauce...........

            So what's the name of your favorite place? That's what we're about here. 
             
            I had two Hebrew National hot dogs, split and grilled, placed into Ball Park buns and slathered with Vlasic Hot Dog Mustard.

                Thanks, Greg.
                 
                Have to look up your chicken.  I've never heard of Ma-Li Chicken but it sounds familiar,

                  Correction on the name of the Chicken..............it's supposed to be:  Ma La and NOT Ma LI
                  Sorry bout that!

                    Made "Rally Enchiladas" in honor of Giants pitcher Vogelsong, whose ritual is to eat chicken enchiladas the night before he pitches a game.  First time making my own enchilada sauce--won't be the last. :)
                     
                    Here's my first attempt at a photo.  Hope it works!

                        One more game!
                         
                        Greg, I looked up the recipe and might actually try making Ma La Chicken.  Need to get those Sichaun Peppercorns.
                         
                        Not sure what I'll make for dinner tonight.  Maybe a pasta because I'm swollen from last night's dinner.

                          We picked these from our garden and Avocado tree this morning so tonights dinner will be:  Fresh Guacamole dip and some BBQ burgers!

                            Isn't guacamole dip redundant?
                             
                            You grow cilantro?  Does it keep the bunnies away?
                             
                            Guess I'll go downstairs and check the cupboards.

                              The Guacamole is not only good for the chips but also ideal when smeared on burgers!
                              Cilantro doesnt keep the bunnies away at all..........  in fact they LOVE it that's why I have hardware cloth over it keeping it covered!

                                Instead of BBqd burgers we opted for homemade meatloaf instead!  Yummmmmmmy

                                  I started my pre-surgery pain meds today. As a consequence, I am so stupid I thought the stove was a bad idea, so we went to Steak 'n Shake. BBQ bacon cheeseburger with fries and a side-by-side peanut butter and chocolate shake.

                                    If we lose power it might be cheese in a can and ritz crackers.

                                      Made a big pot of chili in my old Dutch oven yesterday so it could sit in the fridge overnight to age a day for my dinner tonight. It's all I can think about at my desk this morning trying to get some work done and lay out an emergency plan should the hurricane knock our power out.

                                        That was last night because I was lazy, but tonight it's chelada-brined (beer, V8, salt) pork sirloin chops on the grill.

                                          Tonight's supper is going to be easy; we have a really busy week.   A few weeks ago, one of my daughters got married, and we roasted a whole hog for the reception.  I froze some of the leftovers in freezer bags.  Will thaw out some of that roasted hog, add a bit more bbq sauce, and serve it on buns.  It was really good the first time, and it will be just as good tonight!

                                              The last time I'm cooking for at least a week, since I'm having surgery tomorrow morning. Turkish chicken thighs, Lebanese green beans, and leftover early June peas and lima beans.

                                                      A filet tonight - with Margarita shrimp skewers and a baked potato.  Had a salad for lunch so not another tonight - and a glass of Merlot.
                                                       
                                                      Also baked a small pan of cornbread - tomorrow night will be smoked turkey, dressing, smashed potatoes and green beans - sort of a dress rehearsal for Thanksgiving when we'll add all the other overindugent dishes and do it up right. 
                                                       
                                                       I plan on making the most of this holiday season.
